The State Committee of Uzbekistan’s defence industry has announced that national company Kran-Maxsus texnika has developed a prototype of a domestic armoured vehicle which has great similarities with the EJDER YALCIN 4×4. Nurol Makina, one of the leading manufacturers of armored land vehicles for the Turkish defence industry, had signed a letter of intent with the Uzbek company UzAuto in Uzbekistan at the end of October 2017 for the joint production of 1000 EJDER YALCIN 4×4 Tactical Wheeled Armored Vehicles. The agreement between Nurol Makina and UzAuto included the production of 1000 units of the EJDER YALCIN at UzAuto’s plants in Uzbekistan in co-production of which the first 24 EJDER YALCIN should come from the NUROL MAKINA plant and the remaining vehicles from the 1000 unit package should be produced at UzAuto’s plants in Uzbekistan with a co-production model. The new vehicle is called the “TARLON 44” and will have a maximum capacity of 9 personnel, a 285 hp diesel engine, a range of 700+ kilometres and NATO STANAG Level 3+ armour protection.

- Border Surveillance and Security
